Some time ago I learned of a book called Radical Gratitude by Mary Jo Leddy. I was drawn in by the title, RADICAL gratitude! In it the author says "Gratitude is the beginning of our faith and hope in the possibility of creating something new in the world, of becoming someone new." (pg 69) Later she writes "In gratitude we discover our identity and the purpose of our lives...it is gratitude that enables us to truly live in the present moment, to savor the details of daily life, to pay attention rather than tripping over our lives and ourselves on the way to something else...Patience is the attentiveness of gratitude. It is also the beginning of contemplation and prayer." (pg 135)
It is my hope to be faithful to this site - to find and share moments of gratitude, whether in word or in image. And I hope in my attempts that I might inspire you too, to pay attention as together we continue becoming, and find ourselves filled to overflowing.
